Denise Richards has confirmed that she is returning to “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” as a “friend of” the cast. The actress, who quit the reality series in 2020 after wrapping Season 10, said her experience this time around has “been fun.” She elaborated that she’s participated in “a lot of stuff” with her former co-stars and that she is a “big fan of the show.” Fans went wild last month when Richards appeared to be at a filmed cast dinner alongside fellow alum Camille Grammer, who has not yet commented on her potential involvement in the show’s 14th season.
Sutton Stracke, another returning “Housewife”, recently described the get-together as a “fun, interesting ride.” She added that it’s “nice” to have former diamond-holders — including Kyle Richards’ sister Kim Richards — return to the Bravo program in any capacity.
It doesn’t seem coincidental that Denise’s comeback coincides with Lisa Rinna’s exit. The former soap opera star announced her departure from “RHOBH” in January after eight consecutive seasons. Rinna’s decades-long friendship with Denise — whom she introduced to the group — crumbled after the former perpetuated a rumor that the latter had secretly hooked up with Brandi Glanville. Denise has repeatedly denied that a sexual encounter with Glanville ever took place.
Back to “Bravo, Bravo, f–king Bravo” she goes!
